Business Management Daily



Thursday, February 22, 2024
1:00 PM-2:30 PM EST


Your crash course to handle the slackers, the gossips, the bullies and other morale killers and liability magnets.

In this 75-minute interactive online training, you will learn how to:

  • Identify and fix toxic employees. Learn the correct, legally safe language for these difficult discussions.
  • Document for the maximum legal protection. Focus on the ABCs: accurate, behavior-based and consistent recordkeeping.
  • Decide when to say "enough." Learn simple tips for deciding who should be fired and who simply needs feedback and follow-through.

Stop toxic and discontented workers from infecting your company.

In this labor shortage, you can’t afford to simply cast off every “difficult” employee or those who have personality clashes with co-workers. Such employees may still be adding great value to your organization.

But quietly tolerating toxic employees is just begging for an employment lawsuit. And it’s guaranteed to lead to lower morale and high turnover. The Great Resignation has shown that many workers are simply walking away from organizations that are plagued by bullying, in-fighting, harassment, rumors and “Hunger Games” competitiveness.

Some of your competent-but-disruptive people should be terminated, but others simply need feedback, consequences and follow-through. On February 22, gather your HR and management teams to discover the best-practice steps to handle and document these issues — without drama or legal troubles.
